One reason I have been quiet over the last couple of weeks is because I have been taking a course in Search Engine Optimization and website marketing – a free course! – run by Cricket Bailey and that led me to another related course on html and css.
Search engine optimization is how to write your website code and content in order to improve your ratings on Google and other search engines – in other words, how to improve your chances of people finding you! This course has been teaching me lots of new things… it has also made me realise that I need to rewrite a lot of my website content and code so I’ve joined another of the related groups to get to grips more with html and css.
In case anyone else is interested, they are starting another rerun of the courses on January 6th. You have to join at least two Yahoo groups and fill various forms in to register correctly and I found this a bit of a kerfuffle to start with, but it has been worth it! Once you have joined, you can stay with the classes as many times as you like – they encourage you to work on one webpage at a time.
If you want to do the courses, you have to register with them and follow the links to join the relevant Yahoo groups.
